Nelson Council just dropped a 70km/h stretch to 50. Apparently to fix a problem that isn't there. But lower speeds fix everything - right?
Now the locals, who always did 55-60 in the 70 zone are doing 40 - 45.
And the cops, who were never around to deal with the a**eholes who'd accelerate when you passed them, or tried to stop you merging, or tried to squeeze through on the left as the lanes merged, are out there trying to catch speeders.

Our Canadian politicians have the same "slower must be safer" disease so we know how you feel. Sigh...

Just like the dimwits do down here closing passing lanes during holidays so that it forces people to pass slow coaches on unsafe parts of the road.

Sorry for your loss... of 12.43 MPH.

It's the only place nearby that I could rev out in 1st and 2nd and get two upshift farts. ( Slightly illegally in 2nd, but not arrestable)

I'm distraught.
